Marvalynn Duyne Obituary

Marvalynn (Marv) Jury Duyne was called home on January 13, 2023.  Born November 16, 1942 to Doris and Richard Jury in Rockford, IL; she took her final breaths with her children Rhonda, Robin and Michael and her brother Gary by her side.

Two quotes were found among Marv’s belongings, which we feel embody her spirit. The quotes are as follows:

“One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth doing is what we do for others.”

“I shall pass through this world but once.  If, therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good things I can do, let me do it now; let me not deter it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”

Marv demonstrated her willingness to help whenever needed often joking about running her taxi service because she was always willing to pick up grandchildren from school, give friends rides wherever needed, or to help other family members, especially her brother Brent.  She also gave good advice and helped build you up whenever you were feeling down.  No matter the situation, she was committed to making you feel better and realizing that you were not alone.  Marv was a true protector, a nurturer, and a tower of strength for all who depended on her.   She was a very selfless person and measured her happiness on what she did for those she loved.  Marvalynn did not run from giving or showing kindness.  Instead, she ran to it because she knew that was what God was calling her to do.  God was calling her to spread love and no matter how much her body hurt, she was going to spread love every day.

Marv enjoyed going to church, spending time with family and helping others.  She was known for calling family members on their birthdays and singing happy birthday to them – we will all miss that this year!

Marvalynn is survived by her children Rhonda Schnoor, Robin (Mark) Bumphrey, Mike Duyne, Sherie (Donnie) Woodburn, Robert (Donna) Duyne; brother Gary (Mary Jo) Jury, sister Ranae (Carl) Bergman; grandchildren Ian (Kaity) Bumphrey, Paige (Jose) Gomez, Cameron and Garrett Schnoor, Megan (Caleb) Caveny, Megan Rae (Dylan) Hooker-Kyle, Ryan Palmer, Payton Duyne and Koltan Duyne’ five great granddaughters Ellie and Maizy Caveny, Draycee Hooker-Kyle, Penelope Gomez, Hazel Bumphrey and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.  She was preceded in death by her parents, husband John, brother Brent, and son Richard Duyne and son-in-law Jay Zavagli.

A celebration of life is being planned for a later date and this post will be updated when plans are finalized.  The family would like to thank ProMedica Hospice and especially nurse Melissa for their excellent care of Marvalynn over the last two months.
